UAB will build a 39,000-square-foot medical facility to house a variety of medical services.
The University of Alabama at Birmingham Health System has closed on the property in the Stadium Trace Village development for a new medical office building serving residents of Hoover and southwest Jefferson County. UAB will build a 39,000-square-foot medical facility to house a variety of medical services, including primary care, OB/GYN, oral surgery and other specialties.
Stadium Trace Village is a multi-use development along Highway 150 and Stadium Trace Parkway at Interstate 459. In addition to the UAB clinical facility, the property will feature specialty retail, restaurants, hotels and a new prototype grocery store. Broad Metro Commercial Real Estate is developing the project.
“Exceptional health care is vital to the quality of life in all great communities,” said Will Kadish, marketing director for Broad Metro. “UAB’s decision to locate at Stadium Trace Village is a giant step forward in our goal to create an enduring development at this visible gateway location.”
“Hoover is very excited that UAB has chosen to expand its presence within our city,” said Hoover Mayor Frank Brocato. “The new multiservice clinic at Stadium Trace Village will bring much-needed health care options to our growing community. The UAB/Medical West freestanding emergency department has already added immeasurably to the quality of life for Hoover residents, and we are confident the new clinic will have an even greater impact. We look forward to a long, productive partnership between the UAB Health System and the City of Hoover.”
The UAB Medicine clinic in Hoover at 2321 Highway 150 will move to the new Stadium Trace Village location when it opens. Construction is expected to begin in early 2019. The facility should open in early 2020.
“We are committed to providing outstanding health care to Alabamians,” said Will Ferniany, Ph.D., CEO of the UAB Health System. “To achieve that aim, we recognize the need to bring our expertise and our outstanding facilities to the places where people work and live. The Hoover medical office building continues our efforts to make it easier for residents of Alabama, especially west Jefferson County, to access the world-class care available from UAB Medicine.”
In addition to the flagship facilities clustered in Southside Birmingham, UAB Medicine operates neighborhood clinics in Hoover, Leeds, Gardendale and Inverness, along with an urgent care clinic in Birmingham. Additional facilities include the Heart and Vascular Clinic and the Comprehensive Cancer Center at Acton Road, and Neurosurgery at Greystone.
A new freestanding emergency department and medical office building are under construction in Gardendale to improve services in the northern part of the region. Those facilities are expected to open in spring of 2019.
Medical West is a member of the UAB Health System. UAB also has partnerships with medical providers in Mobile, Montgomery, Anniston, Alexander City, Florence, Demopolis, Camden and Greenville.
“Hoover is the sixth-largest city in Alabama, and along with other communities in south and southwest Jefferson County, continues to experience tremendous growth,” Ferniany said. “This facility, in conjunction with the Medical West freestanding emergency department, which opened in 2015, will provide needed access to medical services for this population,” Ferniany said.
The UAB Health System is a $3.2 billion organization with more than 2,000 medical staff and 17,750 employees in its hospitals, including UAB Hospital, UAB Hospital-Highlands and UAB Callahan Eye Hospital, and authority relationships at Medical West and Baptist Health Montgomery. UABHS is also committed to improving rural health care and manages Bryan W. Whitfield Memorial Hospital in Demopolis, LV Stabler Memorial Hospital in Greenville and John Paul Jones Hospital in Camden. Affiliation relationships include Infirmary Health in Mobile, Eliza Coffee Memorial Hospital in Florence, Northeast Regional Medical Center in Anniston and Russell Medical in Alexander City.
